Reflection on Wilderness Wanderings

“The key to all of it is trust.”  In Numbers 13-14, the Israelites doubt God’s ability to lead them into the promise land, and God allows them to wander in the wilderness for forty years in order to form them in trust. As we discern God’s will for our lives, He gives us periods of “wandering in the wilderness” to powerfully bestow His grace and to form us in trust. Fr. Stephen DeLacy, Vocation Director, reflects on the wandering of the Israelites for 40 years in the Desert.

We invite you to prayerfully ponder these Reflection Questions:

  1. During extended periods of discernment in your life, how was God inviting you to trust Him and how was He forming you?
  2. How is Jesus inviting you to trust Him? What graces is He giving you right now?
  3. Ask God, “What is the purpose you’ve made me for?
